Barcelona has become the second Spanish club to ban their fans from a match due to the coronavirus outbreak.  Their Champions League game against Napoli on 18 March will be played behind closed doors at the Nou Camp because of coronavirus concerns.


"The decision has been made strictly for health reasons," said Joan Guix, Catalunya government's health chief. Reports state that Spain's La Liga is expected to declare that its forthcoming matches will be played behind closed doors.


Getafe's game with Inter Milan in the Europa League suffered the same fate. Paris St-Germain's Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday will also be closed to fans. Manchester United's Europa League last-16 first-leg match at LASK Linz in Austria on Thursday could also be played without fans being admitted.
